I have heard a lot of people say they float a lifeline behind the boat. Is this a serious safety procedure, or just a last ditch effort in case you find yourself in the water? Has anyone actually been saved by this? And what are the odds that you will actually be anywhere near this line if you happen to find yourself overboard?
